'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' Movie Set Adventure at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Be One of the First to Sail on the Reimagined Disney Magic

posted on August 15th, 2013 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


It’s hard to believe we’re just about nine weeks away from the relaunch of the Disney Magic! Right now the ship is finishing up another great summer in the Mediterranean and will sail next to Cadiz, Spain, for a dry dock transformation from September 7 to October 10.

Guests have the first chance to sail aboard the reimagined Disney Magic departing October 20 out of Miami on a special five-night voyage including two stops at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, and a stop at Nassau, Bahamas. This first cruise after dry dock sets the stage for a schedule of two-, three-, four- and five-night cruises from Miami to the Bahamas and Western Caribbean through the end of this year, before the ship begins departing from Port Canaveral, Florida.

The reimagined Disney Magic

Our friends at Spoonful.com are giving a family of four a chance to be one of the first to sail aboard the newly reimagined Disney Magic on October 27. Be sure to enter here.

Are you as excited as I am? Let me know when you’ll be sailing on the Disney Magic next!

Disney Magic Returns to Venice, Italy

posted on July 3rd, 2013 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Today the Disney Magic returned to her birthplace Venice, Italy, for the first time since construction!
Disney Magic Returns to Venice, Italy

The Disney Magic was built in two parts nearby Venice in Marghera and Ancona. Final construction took place in Marghera and the Disney Magic set sail from Venice. The ship is in Venice again as part of the Disney Cruise Line 2013 Mediterranean season. This voyage – along with another Mediterranean cruise later this summer and three in 2014 – will overnight in Venice, giving guests the opportunity to experience an evening in the spectacular city. Plus, the Disney Magic will use Venice as its homeport for select sailings in 2014.

A birthplace like Venice is just one more reason why the Disney Magic lives up to its name, don’t you think?
